BusinessCom — IO Sats Bring Satisfaction

BusinessCom, a global satellite telecommunications service provider, has launched the Advantage IP VSAT service, based on Ku-band IO satellites, providing coverage to more than 18 countries in the Middle East and parts of CIS and Asia, including Iraq and Afghanistan. With the new SLA-enabled service primarily designed to provide IP backbone connectivity for Internet Service Providers and Enterprise customers, BusinessCom has introduced satellite Internet access to these regions at unprecedented pricing.

The new BusinessCom Advantage IP VSAT service is based on the DVB-S2 standard, with ACM (Adaptive Coding and Modulation) delivering up to 52 Mbps IP throughput per terminal, with the ability to bond multiple terminals together. Whenever high order modulation can be used, the throughput can be further increased up to 133 Mbps per terminal. The Advantage IP VSAT service is available in both bi-directional receive and transmit and receive-only configurations, seamlessly integrating with existing terrestrial IP uplinks.
